Show Information

The Monster in the Hall

Duck Macatarsney cares for her biker dad whose MS is getting increasingly bad. Her Dad - Duke - is a spliff smoking, bike riding, heavy metal and horror movie loving, pizza-eating widower who's brought up Duck since the death of her Mother in a crash. The two of them are just about surviving when one morning the Duke wakes up blind and the Duck hears that the Social Services are coming to take her away.

A wildly imaginative musical comedy about a teenage girl trying to protect her world from the terrifying prospect of change.

Winner of ‘Best Ensemble’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011

National Theatre of Scotland will also be presenting the Citizens Theatre production of Yellow Moon at Sherman Cymru on 10 & 12 October
